    I didnt get a chance to look through all the posts but do know a few firms actively working on that very topic. Combined PV and water heater, or think of it as a water cooled PV panel.

    Good stuff on the way!

    I saw a system at the Solar store in Waitsfield, Vermont last week. It's pex tubing run through metal brackets directly under standard metal roofing, with flexible PV panels optionally glued to the metal roofing. Presumably nowhere near the efficiency of a glazed panel, but it looks just like a normal metal roof.
